This paper reports on an international study of the key issues facing Information Systems researchers. A variant of the Delphi method was used to identify and rank the issues. The results identified a consistent and unified group of issues facing most researchers surveyed, regardless of location or research orientation. The results suggest that a reliable and valid instrument is available to measure key issues facing IS researchers. Further work to broaden the relevance to all regions is suggested.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
